Classic Rock Revisited founder Jeb Wright recently spoke with guitarist Slash (VELVET REVOLVER, ex-GUNS N' ROSES) about touring with metal legend OZZY OSBOURNE An excerpt from the interview is available below: Jeb: Since this will be an Slash/Ozzy show I have to ask, who was more of an influence to you as a young guitarist, TONY IOMMI or RANDY RHOADS? Slash: "Definitely Tony Iommi. I never signed up for the ‘80s metal guitar thing. EDDIE VAN HALEN came out in 1978 and I started playing in 1979. Everybody who came out after that paled in comparison and I just never picked up on that style. I love Ozzy and I do like a lot of the songs that he did as a solo artist. I don’t want to knock any of that but as far a musician goes, and an influence, I have to say Tony Iommi." Jeb: This tour will really give a lot of people a great chance to check out the Slash band live and see what you are all about. Slash: "It is a killer band. Myles Kennedy is an amazing singer. We do a lot of stuff off of my solo album, which is going over really great. I have to say it is very flattering how well this thing has gone over. We also will pull out Guns stuff and we do some Velvet stuff. It is basically a snapshot of my entire career delivered at maximum velocity and attitude." Jeb: Will you press record during the tour? Slash: "We have the technology to do that but with this particular tour being only a fifty-minute set with Ozzy then I doubt we will record any of it. After the Ozzy tour we are doing a headlining tour in South America. I might do something then." Go to this location for the complete interview.
